Colorado, concerning the inclusion of certain assets in the Leased Property and the reasonableness of the proposed base rentals under the lease
purchase agreement between the City of Aurora and the Aurora Capital Leasing Corporation, and authorizing the execution and delivery of documents pursuant to the requirements of the ordinance authorizing the lease purchase agreement and the taking of other action in connection therewith.

The consultant discovered that the subsurface rock in Jefferson Lake has factures that are allowing water to pass through the dam to the existing
downstream, causing the vortex. The consultant believes that, on the upstream face of the dam, out in the pool, a clay liner exists. This amendment will allow for additional drilling services to confirm the presence of the clay liner.
Should the clay liner exist, then Jefferson Lake can be repaired by placing a geomembrane liner from the clay to the top of the upstream face of the
dam to seal any future paths (vortex) from developing. If the clay liner is not found, there are alternate methods to fix the vortex but at a much higher cost. The preferred and least expensive fix is the liner.
Pricing was requested from the consultant, and it is in accordance with the original award. Therefore, it is considered to be fair and reasonable.
